👀 Making "sense" of misinformation
#289 | The wisdom (?) of crowds
Today's Thing is another something my offspring introduced me to.
A project by Nicky Case that lets you figure out why groups of people act the way they do. Case has developed various games and simulations that deal with complex systems, psychology, and mathematics. And all of these are at play in Crowds too. Give it a whirl and see if you get why everybody you (used to) know seems so radicalised right now.

While you're at it, you may want to give Nicky Case's website a whirl as well for the whole host of other simulations on there.
Whether it is tools like Nutshell or an interactive guide to trust that Ria wrote about, this website will have you hooked for a very long time. And if you're up for more sciencey stuff, follow Nicky Case on Patreon for explainers like you've never seen them before.
